Wow We ate here on Monday evening for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed. Food was exceptional the surroundings and cleanliness exceptional and staff exceptional. Not cheap but worth it if you enjoy quality. You could tell it was freshly cooked from crisp popadoms...to melt in mouth chicken. Can’t wait to return.More

Tonight we went for a meal for my sisters 18th birthday. Firstly the table we received was beautiful and even provided with a happy birthday decoration for the table. Our host was Paul and his energy and enthusiasm was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble....We had the party sharing platters, which I would highly recommend, the food was all delicious and plentiful with so much variety. Excellent value for money. Thank you all so much for an amazing night. Will definitely be back.More

Came here for the first time on my birthday and had a lovely evening. They made the occasion special by giving me a Happy Birthday sign and also a complimentary birthday desert (accompanied by singing.) Jimmy and his team were friendly and attentive. The food...was tasty and good portion sizes. The decor is lovely and parking is easy as they have a free car park. The only minor is that it’s slightly pricey.More

Our second time we’ve visited Shalimar Gold, and yet again the food and service was first class. From the moment you walk in everyone makes you so welcome. A special mention to Pal though, a really nice guy and nothing too much trouble! Thanks for...the tip on the Balti too, amazing! 5* all the way!More

We booked this restaurant for a family birthday. It was on a night when, allegedly "buy one get one free meal" was on offer. But alas No, the menu was over priced and we ended up paying more than we would have done elsewhere. Each...dish cost on average between £24-to £25. The portion sizes were disappointing, did not merit the cost. . Having said that the food was average and the service was good, but it does not merit the over inflated prices. I would say this was a rip off!!!!More

This was our first visit to the Shalimar gold. The restaurant it’s self, is a very pleasant place to be, the decor is very opulent and plush. everything is spotlessly clean, the staff couldn’t do enough and the service was excellent, they were extremely helpful...and even recommended dishes for me to have, as I don’t like anything too spicy. The food was cooked to a high standard and presented beautifully. They even gave us vouchers off our next meal. I would definitely return and recommend Pal, his team and the Shalimar gold to all my friends and family.More
